Futsal
What is Futsal?
The term Futsal is an abbreviation of futebol de salao (Portuguese) or Futbol Sala
(Spanish) which translated means indoor soccer just like soccer is an abbreviation of
association football.
Futsal was developed in South America, and some say it originated in Montevideo,
Uruguay and others in Sao Paolo, Brazil. However it has developed into a very popular
game both in South America and Europe over the years, and has been used as a tool to
develop good soccer technique in young players to allow them to become more
confident on the ball. When you look at countries like Brazil, Argentina, Portugal and
Spain where Futsal is a big part of their culture you can see the success Futsal has had
in developing technically proficient players.
The game of Futsal is played with 2 teams of 5 players including a goalkeeper, and is
played on a court similar to the size of a basketball court. The ball is smaller in size and
is weighted so the bounce is reduced. The rules are closer to soccer than the British
and American versions of indoor soccer as there are no walls, and if the ball leaves the
boundaries of the court possession is handed over to the other team.
Futsal the Benefits for Soccer Development
1. Futsal is played with a small number of players, which allows players to have
more touches on the ball which helps players to become more comfortable on
the ball
2. The Futsal ball with its reduced bounce allows players to get good control of the
ball without it bouncing away, which gives players a greater confidence on the
ball and encourages players to be more creative on the ball.
3. The Futsal ball also encourages players to pass over short distances and keep
the ball on the ground as it is harder to just kick the ball in the air down field.
This will help to develop good habits in players at an early age.
4. Futsal is played in a small area on a fast gym surface, which will help players to
improve their quickness of thought, which will allow players to make better
decisions when under high pressure situations or in tight spaces in games
5. Futsal rules are closer to soccer, as there are no walls, if the ball goes out of play
possession is lost, this encourages good habits as players will try to keep
possession of the ball rather than take the easy option to play off the walls, or
kick the ball down field knowing the ball will remain in play.
6. Being in the gym creates a fun environment for young players and keeps them
out of the cold, wet weather during the winter months, which will help players to
remain interested in soccer and develop a passion for the sport.

How the Sessions work?


Each Session plan is to be used as a guide and concentrates on a particular
topic. It is up to the coach to look at adapting the sessions suitability to the
conditions, age and ability of the players.

FUTSAL WARM UP
At the start of each Futsal session players will perform a 10 minute ball juggling warm up
before moving onto the 1st exercise. For the ball juggling warm up the regular size 3
balls will be used and each player will need a ball. Below is a table which outlines the
progressions for each juggling warm up session all exercises are performed in a 15x15d
grid:

inside the grid (See Diagram). Half the cones should be
up-right and the others on there side. Split the players
into 2 teams. The aim of the game is for one team to run
around and knock over the up-right cones while the
teams job is to put the cones back up the right way.
After 1 min teams switch roles.
Progressions
Players dribble a ball
Team knocking down the cones can only do so by
kicking their ball onto the cone

(see diagram). Place half the balls in one end zone and
half the balls in the other. Each team selects 2 players
to be the defenders. Teams line up on opposite sides of
the field and the defenders position themselves between
the 2 end zones (see diagram). On the coaches
command the teams run across to the opposite end
zone pick up a ball and attempt to carry the ball back to
their end zone without being tagged by the defenders, if
tagged the ball is replaced and they must try again. The
team with the most balls in there end zone after a set
time is the winner
Progressions
Players now have to dribble ball across, defenders must
also dribble a ball
Players must dribble the ball past the defenders who are
now attempt to touch the ball with their feet

players then compete to creating a 1v1 with the
emphasis is to dribble the ball into the end zone.
